This may sound weird but when mixed together it’s awesome. Also it’s very low-carb and filling.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed

  • 1 pound ham steak, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 4 asparagus spears, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 slices Provolone cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat; add onion and green pepper. Cook and stir until onion is slightly brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in ham and garlic salt.
